UPDATE: Several players were in the draft that shouldn't have been. Ex: Don Mattingly, Jon Singleton, Lasorda, and Cole Hamels - I am entering names now and finding the dupes. Now that players are in ootp, mistakes should be reduced. Sorry about that!
Hello, everyone! Welcome to another edition of PackADaily Circus Update! At some point, I will attempt to do these updates (or some updates, anyway) on Youtube or BlogRadio or something. Yeah, yeah, I know, something else I am adding different from last year. When will I stop? Probably never. haha!
First up, let's talk about the OOTP game. We are using OOTP16 and I have assigned teams to divisions. Like last season, we will have two main leagues, each having 4 divisions. Let's see how things worked out:
|UPTOWN FUNK LEAGUE||DOWNTOWN GROOVE LEAGUE|
..Play at the Plates
Punto Obelisco Division
..Thoughts and Sox
|Green Park Division|
..Eastern Virginia Mutts
Oxford Circus Division
..Cobb County SuperChickens
..The Balking Dead
..Ventura County Royals
Caring Cross Division
..New Jersey Hadsalls
The first thing you probably notice are the team names. Some managers kept their names from last season and other decided to try something new. You may also notice that teams have been shifted around from last year's divisions. Some folks may be in the same division, others may not. There was no rhyme or reason to how things worked out.
I have previously assigned drafted players to teams. This most recent draft, which ended up running late, will be added to the game shortly. Speaking of the most recent one, as of this writing anyway, here are the results:
I want to give yet another H-U-G-E thank you to Josh D for making an update to the draft system. Now, I just copy the data from Google and the system will swap out email addresses for in-game team names! I cannot tell you how much time this whole process saves me compared to last season!
Managers, I will have the next draft to you before Tuesday (March 24) morning!
Thanks for reading along!
